TYPES OF HAZARD
|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE-FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Flammable. Cylinder may explode in heat of fire.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.||In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.|
|EXPLOSION||Gas/air mixtures are explosive.||Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting.||In case of fire: keep cylinder cool by spraying with water.|
|EXPOSURE||AVOID ALL CONTACT!||IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!|
|Inhalation||Burning sensation. Cough. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Sore throat.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Administration of oxygen may be needed. Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Pain. Blisters. Skin burns. ON CONTACT WITH LIQUID: FROSTBITE.||Cold-insulating gloves. Protective clothing.||Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower for at least 15 minutes. ON FROSTBITE: rinse with plenty of water, do NOT remove clothes. Refer immediately for medical attention .|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain. Severe burns. ON CONTACT WITH LIQUID: FROSTBITE.||Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer immediately for medical attention.|
|PACKAGING & LABELLING|
|Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Personal protection: gas-tight chemical protection suit including self-contained breathing apparatus. Ventilation. Shut off cylinder if possible. Isolate the area until the gas has dispersed. Remove gas with fine water spray. NEVER direct water jet on liquid.||
